Lowell Catholic welcomed the newest (and youngest) Crusaders in Alison Bedard's pre-kindergarten class Wednesday. Many children were excited to jump right in and play with new friends and new toys, including Jacob McCluskey, who was very excited to share his love of dinosaurs with his classmates, and Brooke Dastou, who loves the fish tank full of goldfish but wants to know, "Where's Dory?"

LOWELL -- Lowell Catholic students in grades 1-12 returned to campus this past week.

Freshmen started the week early on Monday with a retreat day full of ice-breakers, games that helped to forge new bonds of friendship and upperclassmen who shared a bit about their experience as a Crusader.

"It was a seamless transition from Lowell Catholic Elementary to the high school," freshman Lexi Guignard said. "I already felt like part of the community, and although I was really coming to a new school, I truly felt at home. I also saw other freshmen that I met last year at the citywide retreats hosted by LC and am excited to be making so many new friends at once"

On Tuesday, LC's Elementary students in grades 1-8 began their school year, greeted by Head of School Maryellen DeMarco, Associate Principal of Elementary Education Dan Price and high-school student volunteers eager to welcome families back to school. Sister Jane Holland led the assembled students in prayer and wished everyone a successful year. Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students return to campus this upcoming week.

There is space available in some levels for the 2017-2018 school year, and applications are still being accepted. There are open houses planned for Oct. 19 and 22. Visit www.lowellcatholic.org/LC4ME.

LOWELL -- Incoming seniors at Lowell Catholic took part in the school's annual three-day Senior Leadership Institute Retreat earlier this month.

The retreat, held at Prindle Pond Conference Center in Charlton, prepared the students for their new leadership role as seniors on campus this fall.

Deacon Fran Burke, director of spiritual life at LC, coordinated the event and included exercises that facilitated bonding, self-discovery and growing together as a class. Outdoor adventures, such as exploring a pond and participating in a ropes course, helped to engage the students while teaching vital leadership skills.

The students will play key roles in welcoming the freshman class to campus, assisting with the freshman and middle-school retreats, and serving in leadership roles throughout the year.

Lowell Catholic, a Pre-K through grade 12 school, is accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year. It will host an open house for the high school on Thursday, Oct. 19, from 6 to 6:30 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 22, from noon to 2:30 p.m. Email admissions@lowellcatholic.org or call 978-452-1794, ext. 122, for more details.

Lowell Catholic 8th-graders Honored

Lowell Catholic recently celebrated the first graduating class of its Elementary Division with the 8th Grade Achievement Celebration.

After opening remarks by Head of School Maryellen DeMarco and a student welcome by eighth-grader Nikolas Smith, students and their families enjoyed a luncheon.

Dan Price, associate principal of elementary education, recognized students who excelled in several academic courses and awarded certificates for outstanding contributions in the classroom. Awards were also presented for achievements in standardized testing, and Presidential Education Awards were given for overall educational excellence.

Lowell Catholic, because it is a Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School, has a mission of building a student's strong sense of character and personal development. In honor of those values, several new awards were created to recognize students who most stood out among their class.

The Spirit of the Class Award was presented to Antonia Mukiibi for being positive, joyful and supportive to all of her classmates.

The St. Joseph the Worker Award was presented to Lena Lam of Lowell for her extraordinary effort in the classroom.

The St. Margaret Legacy Award was presented to Katherine McMahon of Lowell for demonstrating charity, strong character and commitment to unity, much like St. Margaret of Scotland.

The Franco American Legacy Award was awarded to Caitlin Tully of Lowell, who demonstrated respect and care for others, accepts all students, and uses her gifts to serve others.

The final award, the Xaverian Award, was presented to Rowan Ruggiero for his consistent demonstration of the Xaverian values of simplicity, humility, compassion, zeal and trust.

The eighth-grade class also enjoyed a class dinner/dance and a class trip to Canobie Lake Park. Graduation took place at Saint Margaret's Church on June 5, with 28 members of Lowell Catholic Elementary School's class of 2017.
